Acer's Swift 7 Announced in CES 2018

Acer's updated Swift 7 Ultrabook is once again the 'thinnest computer in the world'

It's been two years since then and nobody's been able to beat Acer's accomplishment. The exact specifications will vary from region to region and you can find out more from the Acer website. The new model, launching in March, will measure in at just 8.98 millimeters, therefore making it the world's thinnest laptop, according to the company. The convertible laptop goes on sale in February with starting prices of $599 (or approx Rs 37,995).

On the display front, it features a 13.5-inch IPS display with 2256 x 1504 resolution and supports Windows Ink powered by Wacom EMR technology. It also costs $1,699, a price that gets you always-on 4G LTE connectivity, a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen display, a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage. Acer also didn't mention if it was a Y-series processor or a regular one but we've reached out to them and are waiting to hear back. There's up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM at your disposal with up to a 512GB SSD for storage.

The Acer Swift 7 is expected to go on sale in Europe in April, with pricing starting at €1,699 - United Kingdom pricing is unconfirmed. Is it worth it? There's also a backlit keyboard, 10 hours of battery life, a fingerprint reader, and a unibody aluminum chassis.

Personally, I like the way the new laptop looks in pictures. The Swift 7 is stunning in one sense, but kind of gawky in the way there's a notable gap between the screen panel and base panel, plus the bottom bezel of the screen is huge.
